  1. I remember Lee as a student at Lincoln High. He was such a sweet young man with a great sense of humor. My prayers go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.

  2. I want to express my heartfelt sympathy to the Smith family. May your precious memories of Lee be foremost in your hearts and minds along with the wonderful promise that Jesus made at John 5:28,29. If you would like more information on this wonderful resurrection promise, o to where you will find comfort in your time of grief. Again, my sincere condolences.

  3. Its hard to put into words what’s in your heart. Larry and I also have a son that is in the service, but to loose them in a civilian way makes it so much harder. Take heart that now your son is with the Lord and maybe his worries are gone.

  4. Kathy and Mark so sorry for you’r loss, your in my thoughts and prayers. His Grandmother sure was proud of Him. Love you guys!
